Never played PvZ. Doesn't look interesting. Cut The Rope and various other games seem like a better choice.

PvZ is my favorite game on the platform by far. However it's not exclusive to the platform.

Carcassone is the second best thing.

PvZ is really fun. Love it on iPad. Easier to play than on computers due to multitouch display.

The iPhone app of the year is the annoying one that takes the high quality photos and makes them look bad. Nice.

I've always wondered how AppShopper isn't a violation of the affiliate terms and conditions, which clearly states that a site cannot:

"Violate any intellectual property rights, including, without limitation, scraping text or images from Apple's Websites or the iTunes Store."

Is that not exactly what AppShopper does - descriptive copy word-for-word, screenshots, and icon?

Surely Angry Birds should be the Game of the Year. It's been number one for as long as I can remember and it's an international sensation. It's even spawned an Israeli comedy sketch. Sure, it was technically released in 2009, but if it wasn't even considered then why is it's icon in the iTunes Rewind banner?

It's alright Birds, you're still my number one.

Osmos...

Great choice with Osmos. It's made for touch, and looks & sounds beautiful. I hope the platform spawns more unclassifiable creative games like this one...

Yeah, I never understood why the most popular photography apps were the ones that took perfectly good photos and made them look like crap. Taking a crappy photo and desaturating it and slapping a Polaroid border around it doesn't make it art!

Rewind?

I wonder how many iTunes users even remember what "rewind" refers to. Most of them grew up well after the days of tape.

We should "dial" their phone numbers and ask them!

Wait, the same corporation that polices the App Store by not allowing adult-themed apps into it has announced Eminem is their Artist of the Year? Very ironic. This must be a bad dream. Quick, someone wake me up. I can't take it anymore.

I disagree with you
Thumb resize.

And Plants vs Zombies is a great game, so I'm not mad that it beat out some of the other top games

It may not be exclusive to iOS, but PvZ on the iPad is the best implementation of the game.
